When you’re planning your wedding ceremony, no doubt you'll want it to be unique and special. After all, you’re not like everyone else, so why should your ceremony be generic?

If you want to add your own spin on a wedding ceremony, take time to plan out some special ways that you can personalize the ceremony. This will make your day more memorable.

Wondering what you can do to personalize the ceremony? Here are a few great ideas that will add something special to the big day.

Write the vows

You don't have to go with traditional vows during your wedding ceremony. If you want to make it more personal, sit down and write your own vows. You may want to surprise each other by writing your vows in secret. Another option is to write the vows together so you make sure you both say exactly what you want to say to each other during the ceremony.

Choose special music

Music is a great way to personalize your wedding ceremony. Instead of using traditional wedding music, think of songs that are special and meaningful to the two of you. Then try incorporating these songs into the ceremony to make it something special.

Prayers and wishes

Another great idea is to have prayers and wishes spoken by the guests at your wedding ceremony. This works especially well if you are going with a small wedding. Consider having a few moments where your guests can take a moment to offer a special wish or pray a special prayer during the ceremony.

Add culture to the ceremony

Do you have a specific ethnic ancestry that you’d like to highlight? If so, you can personalize your wedding ceremony by integrating some special cultural traditions into the ceremony. This is a wonderful way to make your ceremony unique and to recognize your cultural background.

Choose a unique location

You may want to choose a unique location for the ceremony, which is another way you can make the day special for you and your spouse. Instead of going with a house of worship, consider other options like outdoor locations or other venues. This can help you have a memorable wedding ceremony that no one will forget.
